I am seriously lusting. Full disclosure, I’ll be gushing over the next few paragraphs. Because I am swooning over the Jason Wu for Target collection.
If you know me, you probably know how much I love Target. And some of my favorite clothes have been from both their standard and designer collections. But something about this collection really makes me want to go Black Friday, Totally Crazy, Wake Up at 5:00 a.m. to Get in Line, I WILL Fight You for that Navy Dress and Max Out My Credit Card Buying EVERYTHING (shhh, don’t tell Mint.com) Completely Obsessed.
Mr. Wu is the latest of a number of designers who have created a line in the cheap-chic realm. Sometimes my take is these collections can feel a bit forced and fussy, like it’s more important to have something that’s distinctively from a designer, rather than just wearing clothes that reflect what you like.
I’ve enjoyed Target designer collections before (Issac Mizrahi, please come back!), and I have a hunch this will be among my favorites.
What I think I love its balanced approach to femininity and maturity. The pieces have just lovely details – stripes! floral! pleats! Yet remain polished and put-together.
Browsing the entire collection, each piece seemed extremely wearable with numerous combinations across all different scenarios – work, brunch, dinner date, strolling through the city. I appreciate the value and versatility of any kind of clothes that can be worn both at the office and on the weekend.
As a city girl, closet space is at a premium. And it’s sort of just a thing I have to not pay a lot of money for clothes. Yes, I definitely spring for value and investment pieces when quality is important. But on an everyday basis, I’d love lots of pretty clothes, just maybe for not a lot of money, pretty please : )
And just for fun, look at the commercial for the collection. Adorable. And the clothes are just lovely.
Will you be checking out the Jason Wu for Target collection? Do you have your eye on any pieces?
